About Emma Daykin
My name is Emma, I am the property manager for La Fontanina. I have lived locally since 1999 with my husband and 2 daughters who have grown up here. We live here all the time and have run a small rental agency of local properties for many years - taking over from my parents who started the business before the internet existed!
Why Emma Daykin chose Umbertide
The peace and beauty of the countryside surrounding La Fontanina can not be exaggerated, it is still very accessible. For a very comfortable stay for a couple in a very well-maintained property, La Fontanina can not be beaten.

Remote and charming
Beautifully appointed, exceptionally clean house and the garden is immaculate. Everything we needed for a very relaxing holiday including beautiful weather. But be warned, it’s a 8 minute drive up the mountain from the main road, too far to go back if you forget the milk!!
La fontanina Fantastic in every way
This was our first visit to Umbria we were looking for a quiet location in the country side with mountain views and what a surprise the villa is even better than it looks on the photos, giancarlo and Anne made us so welcome they are a lovely couple, the villa is renovated to a very high standard with everything you would need, outside has been designed by giancarlo who is the architect and is fantastic with wonderful landscaping seating all round the garden then onto the gorgeous infinity pool very clean which we had all to ourselves we would highly recommend this villa.

A wonderful time in Umbria visiting great locations like Perugia, Assisi & Cortona.
What a beautiful villa! It had everything we wanted. Beautifully designed and tended estate with a gorgeous pool that we had to ourselves. The accommodation was great and had all the facilities we look for, as well as privacy. The owners were both discrete & very helpful. We would recommend this villa highly.
Outstanding accommodation and countryside
This was our first visit to Umbria and we didn't know what to expect. We were delighted with our choice of La Fontanina, it couldn't have been better. We completely relaxed with the warm welcome, lovely weather and the tranquility of the stunning countryside. The cottage was all we needed, comfortable and exceptionally clean. Many thanks to Anne and Giancarlo.
Gently rolling hills and total peace
The cottage although compact is very well presented and beautifully clean, everything was in good working order. There are numerous shady seating areas throughout the grounds. The pool was always spotlessly clean. Anne and GianCarlo were friendly but discreet. Very good value for money and in many ways a perfect holiday.
Thanks for your review and for taking the time to write it. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Emma
La Fontanina is an amazing property - immaculate and beautifully maintained.
My husband and I spent a wonderful week at La Fontanina. We visited Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Montone and Citta del Castello but were always glad to return 'home'!! It was extremely hot during our stay and we were very glad of the air conditioning and the pool. We thoroughly enjoyed food at La Locanda di Nona Gelsa and wine tasting at Ristorante I Girasoli di Sant' Andrea, both of which are not far from La Fontanina. Ann and her husband, who own the property, are delightful hosts. The property is high up and the views of the Umbrian landscape are amazing.
Dear Hilary, we are grateful for your review and very happy that you enjoyed your stay.
